James Cameron defends Avatar gaps

By the time Avatar 2 finally arrives in cinemas at the end of 2020, it’ll be 11 years since the release of the original film. A film that, of course, went on to become the biggest of all time at the box office. But one that’s still take its time to get its follow-up.

Production starts on the sequels – and there are four of them planned, remember – this summer, and writer/director James Cameron has been addressing the sizeable gap between the first two movies.

Turns out he’s not worried. “It was a seven year gap between The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, seven year gap between Alien and Aliens”, he reminded CNN.

“It’s going to be obviously more like a ten year gap between Avatar and Avatar 2. But Avatar 2 you are going to with not the promise, but the certainty of three more films beyond that, and that’s a very different concept with the audience. And a lot of the delay has been around creating that overall vision”.
